We're excited to say the IBM Connect 2014 Conference sessions have been finalized and they will cover a range of topics, from thought leadership to keynotes to the technical nuts and bolts. With more than a thousand abstracts submitted, we had plenty of excellent content to choose from and did our best to create a diverse, interesting and exciting agenda. We even added a new track, Influencers and Thought Leaders, featuring key influencers that many of you are familiar with.
You can visit the new session agenda preview tool on the website for a list of all the accepted sessions.
It's a busy week for the team - today we announced that Tuesday's night party will take place at Disney's Hollywood Studios. With all the excitement happening, don't forget to register. The early bird rate ends this Friday, December 13.
Congratulations to our speakers. We hope you'll join us on Tuesday. December 10 at 9pm ET for the #GetRealChat Twitter chat where will discuss Social Trends in 2014 and what folks can expect to learn at Connect.
